EXCLUSIVE: Shyne Blasts Diddy (Again), Sets Tentative Date For U.S. Performance "With or Without Obama"
(AllHipHop News) Shyne, who released his self-proclaimed comeback mixtape Gangland just weeks ago, has unleashed a new verbal tirade against former mentor/friend Sean "Diddy" Combs, whom he accused of refusing to help him get his re-gain the right's to come back to the United States.
After making it well-known that he was "disgusted" by Rick Ross' sworn portrayal of gang life and the Jewish culture on the Black Bar Mitzvah mixtape, Shyne kept the ball rolling in a new interview with AllHipHop.com.
Shyne was deported from the United States almost a year to the day (October 2009), after serving nine years in prison for an infamous shooting in 1999 involving Diddy, Jennifer Lopez, Shyne and Diddy's former bodyguard Anthony "Wolf" Jones.
Jones was also implicated in the now infamous 1999 Manhattan club shooting with Diddy and J. Lo. Jones, who was tragically murdered outside an Atlanta, Georgia nightclub in 2003, was a close associate of Diddy's.
Shyne admitted he resented Diddy and then blasted the Hip-Hop mogul, who he claims failed to take care of Wolf's extended family.
"The testament to that is the way he treats Anthony Wolf Jones' mother and his family. If it wasn't for Anthony Wolf Jones, he [Diddy] wouldn't be alive today. I know this for a fact," Shyne told AllHipHop.com. "Suge Knight was on his back and Wolf was the guy that kept Diddy alive. You would think that after he passed away he would have gratitude forever, especially when you think about the way that he's rolling. How you not sending your man's kid's off to college? How you not take care of your man's mother mortgage?"
Aside from his issues with Diddy, those fans looking to hear Shyne perform songs off his Gangland project like the popular "Meyer Lansky" track featuring Pusha-T can expect to hear him live stateside in March of next year.
"We working on that and for whatever reason President Obama don't see the benefit that I bring to the African and Latin-American impoverished communities throughout the United States of America," Shyne told AllHipHop.com. "He doesn't seem to get the fact that [there is] nobody more [qualified] than myself to speak to these kids in an honest way with integrity, that can influence them to change their lives and turn their lives around. He doesn't get the fact that I'm the spokesperson to combat the violence in inner cities. But we working on getting that visa, so I should be in the United States in March of 2013, with or without Obama."
